and get the rhetorical backing from its nato allies. but they have continued shelling. this is not all sophisticated military. they're trying to destroy. and we've had reports from syrian opposition activist that's are syrian army casualties as a result of the turkish strikes. >> and a few analysts are suspecting that syria's attack on turkey may have been orchestrated by either the assad regime or the rebels in an attempt to pull turkey into the syrian conflict. do you have any evidence of that? >> reporter: at this point, no. i mean i understand both points of view and the rational towards making them. at this point it is hard to understand why the president would want to further complicate his life by drawing in his key neighborhood backer of the syrian rebel movement and also has the backing of nato. that is hard to understand. yes, there's a lot of logic as to why the rebels would like to see turkey come more in their side militarily and, of course, turkish artillery is doing their job for them now, destroying some syrian military regime targets there. but those theories require e
in afghanistan as we also work with our nato allies who are there strengthening us and we need to grow our military. we cannot afford to lose against al qaeda and the shia extremists who are still there, still fighting us, but we're getting closer and closer to victory. and it would be a travesty if we quit now in iraq. >> senator? >> gwen, with all due respect, i didn't hear a plan. barack obama offered a clear plan. shift responsibility to iraqis over the next 16 months. draw down our combat troops. ironically the same plan that maliki, the prime minister of iraq and george bush are now negotiating. the only odd man out here, only one left out is john mccain, number one. number two, with regard to barack obama not quote funding the troops, john mccain voted the exact same way. john mccain voted against funding the troops because of an amendment he voted against had a timeline in it to draw down american troops. and john said i'm not going to fund the troops if in fact there's a time line. barack obama and i agree fully and completely on one thing. you've got to have a time line to draw d
. and on this, there will be no flexibility with vladimir putin. i will call on our nato allies to keep the greatest military alliance in history strong by honoring their commitment to each devote 2% of their gdp to security spending. today, only three of the 28 nato nations meet this benchmark. i will make further reforms to foreign assistance, to create incentives for good governance, for free enterprise, and for greater trade in the middle east and beyond. i will organize all efforts in the greater middle east under one official, with responsibility and accountability to prioritize efforts and to produce results. i will rally our friends and our allies to match our generosity with their, and i will make it clear to the recipients of our aid that in return for our material support, they must meet the responsibilities of every decent, modern government, to respect the rights of all the citizens, including women and minorities, to ensure civil society, a free media, political parties, and an independent judiciary, and to abide by international commitments to protect our diplomats and o
louder. fueled in part by the deaths, murders of nato troops by afghans they are training, so-called green on blue attacks have claimed nearly 50 lives thus far this year. and the killings, they're taking a toll on the troops in the field. here is what nato's secretary-general told britain's guardian newspaper just this week. quoting here, quote, there is no doubt insider attacks have undermined trust and confidence, absolutely. the secretary-general told the guardian nato's withdraw could come sooner than expected and those attacks have also frustrated, angered those who lead the troops. just this past sunday general john alan, the isaf commander, voiced his frustration on "60 minute minutes". >> i'm mad as hell about them. we're going get after this. it reverberates everywhere, across the united states. we're willing to sacrifice a lot for this campaign, but we're not willing to be murdered for it. >> with the headline that one in the guardian, proclaiming the withdraw could be sped up and with general alan saying, mad as hell about the attacks, i can't help but remember the

inside syria. also a diplomatic response invoking nato calling for an emergency meeting inside of brussels. over the past few months turkey amassed a large fighting force on their border with syria. we have seen tanks and heavy artillery. that country is on a war footing. will syria respond and take their licks and give an apology and move on from this. bill: leland vittert live from jerusalem there. martha: almost as important as what was said is what was not said. coming up bill o'reilly joins us with his analysis. we are looking forward to that. bill: chris wallace is live ... >> you have been president for four years. you said you would cut the deficit in half. it's four years later and we have a trillion dollar deficit. martha: brand-new reaction this hour to the first presidential debate of the 2012 campaign. president obama and governor romney went toe-to-toe last night, for the very first time the two men together on the stain. fascinating to watch the dynamics between the two of them. we'll see what happens that decides the next four years and who wins after the course
a day away. but first, we'll start with afghanistan. nato's secretary general says there's a possibility that western forces could be withdrawn from afghanistan more quickly than previously planned. he suggested the deadly spike of insider attacks has hit the morale of former troops serving in the war zone. and today's front page of the "new york times" claims the u.s. is abandoning its hopes for a peace deal with the taliban. the "times" reports american officials are essentially giving up on what was once a critical component of their strategy in afghanistan. they're opting for a far less ambitious plan that would have the afghans work out a deal among themselves once u.s. combat troops withdraw by the end of 2014. richard engel has been covering the conflict for nearly 11 years and filed this report from the afghan capital. >> reporter: this woman is about to die. executed for adultery. the man she was with got off scot-free, the taliban recently filmed this video of their justice as a warning and to say they're making a comeback. some 30 miles away in the village, we saw few signs of
, and the administration officials say the deadline is crucial. meanwhile, the nato secretary general says the retreat of western forces from afghanistan could come sooner than expected, adding that their recent green- on-blue killings have been successful in sapping morale. turning to presidential politics, a judge rules whether to keep intact pennsylvania put the new law requiring voters to show photo id in the election. there is a supreme court order to will no later than today at 5:00 p.m., five weeks before voters go to the polls. homeland security is reporting that one border patrol agent has been killed and one wounded in an arizona shooting. we'll keep you updated. those are some of the latest headlines on c-span radio. >> when nation's chief in trade, and china has cheated, i will do something the president has not been willing to do, call them on the carpet and label them a currency manipulator. >> we brought more trade cases against china in one term in the previous administration did him in two, and we have been winning those cases >> wednesday, president obama and mitt romney need in thei
, pakistan, the middle east, turkey, meeting with leaders of nato, i have a very clear idea of what has to be done to keep this country safe. the threats we face -- terrorism, killing terrorists and stopping them before they can do damage to us, making sure that we stop the spread of nuclear weapons. i agree with john kerry from thursday night, the danger of a nuclear weapon getting in the hands of terrorists one of the greatest threats that america faces. but the one thing that we know from this administration is -- and i -- first of all, i don't claim to have the long political resume that vice president cheney has. that's just the truth. and the american people know that and deserve to know it. but what we know from this administration is that a long resume does not equal good judgment. here are the judgments i would make. my first priority would be to keep this country safe. i would find terrorists where they are and stop them and kill them before they do harm to us. we would stop the spread of nuclear weapons. and we would also strengthen this military, which means providing the eq
partisan by nato nine. then in 2011, yet another chance for bowles/simpson and we can squabble about what obama should have done, whether they do with boehner could have happened, but it didn't. but i would be wary of generalizing from the last 10 years, just that would've made a mistake and go to to say the preceding 20 years would've been the model. and i do think the system is so broken or so partisan that one couldn't have more like what we had. this is a topic of this panel because the presidential leadership with presidential leadership and real practical leadership as well as rhetorical will be very, very important. there's a bunch of issues. you could do immigration reform in 2013. i don't think it's a huge substantive disagreement about that. you can get 75% of those, 280 houseboats for the right piece of legislation. but is anyone going to step up and do not? you can imagine 2013 a lot of these issues seem totally intact to pull. but those require skillful presidential leadership. >> right here in the aisle with a question. >> yes, good morning. you know, o'connor retired foreig
